Compete for the chance to win a trip to UT-Austin

College access begins early, and requires consistent awareness. In partnership with Counseling & Student Support, HISD’s Office of College & Career Readiness will host the district’s first annual Elementary College Week from Jan. 29 – Feb. 2.

To celebrate, the department will be conducting the Destination: College! contest for a chance to win a trip to UT-Austin. During each day of Elementary College Week, students in grades pre-K through fifth are encouraged to showcase their college knowledge.

Please note that your elementary campus must opt in to participate by Jan.26. To view all activities, unit plans, contest details, and guidelines, visit

Complete unit plans will be available on Tuesday, Jan. 16, to introduce your students to college and career options in a way that is both creative and engaging. Students will complete one college-related activity each day in their classrooms. The week will culminate in a student display incorporating each of these activities.

As part of the competition, teachers are encouraged to post pictures and videos of Elementary College Week activities daily on Twitter or Facebook.

Tag the College Readiness team on Twitter @HISD2College, and use #HISDElem2College to ensure that your entry is tracked.
